Boeing has made this announcement:
Boeing has delivered the first of three 787-10 airplanes (JA900A) to ANA (All Nippon Airways), the original launch customer of the 787 Dreamliner. With this milestone delivery, ANA becomes the first airline in Asia to operate the entire Dreamliner family.
As a stretch of the popular 787-9, the 787-10 carries a total of 330 seats in a standard two-class configuration, adding about 40 more passengers, while setting new benchmarks for fuel efficiency and operating economics with 25 percent better fuel per seat.
This delivery marks the 67th Dreamliner to join ANA’s fleet of 36 787-8s and 30 787-9s, the largest 787 fleet in the world. The SKYTRAX rated five-star airline plans to operate the new super-efficient 787-10 on its popular Tokyo-Singapore route.
ANA made this announcement:
All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan’s largest and 5-Star airline for seven consecutive years, has announced that its new Boeing 787-10 arrived in Japan on March 31, 2019, from Boeing’s manufacturing facility in Charleston, SC. Among a range of upgrades, the advanced aircraft features upgraded seats with enhanced comfort and functionality in both Premium Economy and Economy Class.
“The 787-10 is a cutting-edge plane and ANA is honored to be the first Japanese airline to fly the aircraft,” said Hideki Kunugi, Executive Vice President of ANA. “ANA now has the distinction of being the only airline in Asia to operate all models (787-8, 787-9 and 787-10) of the 787 aircraft. The 787 fleet is known for its extremely low noise levels, excellent fuel efficiency and in-flight comfort, all of which support ANA’s mission to push the standards of air travel by investing in the latest technology.”
The Boeing 787-10 is scheduled to begin flying on April 26, 2019, from Tokyo-Narita to Changi-Singapore before it begins service from Narita Airport to Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport on July 1, 2019. These routes aim to meet the high demand for flights connecting prominent locations in Asia and will allow Japan to serve as a convenient connecting point for flyers.
Along with its new, more comfortable seats, the aircraft’s Premium Economy and Economy Class features a six-way adjustable headrest and the largest touchscreen personal seat monitor in its class. The seat monitors have been updated to include swipe-to-search ability and support for five additional languages – which brings the total to 11. The high capacity aircraft also offers the popular “Full Flat” seats, in the Business Class cabin. Furthermore, the next-generation “ANA Flight Path” map will be added to the flights, using 3D mapping to provide tourism guides and restaurant recommendations from Japan’s largest travel review site, 4 travel.
ANA plans to acquire a total of three 787-10s by the end of fiscal year 2020 and gradually introduce them to its Southeast Asian routes as part of its commitment to bring top-of-the-line aircraft and technology to travelers.

Come watch with us the official delivery ceremony of the first Airbus A380 to All Nippon Airways (ANA). ANA has firm orders for three A380s, becoming the first customer for the superjumbo in Japan. The airline will operate the aircraft on the popular leisure Narita-Honolulu route. The three ANA A380s will be painted in a special livery depicting sea turtles which are native to Hawaii. This particular livery is one of the most elaborate ever painted by Airbus. It took 21 days for the Airbus team to paint a surface of 3,600m2 using 16 different shades of color.
All Nippon Airways (ANA) and Boeing announced the Japanese carrier has finalizes its order for two 777 Freighters valued at $678 million according to list prices.
While ANA is a major operator of the 777 passenger jet, it has grown its cargo operation with the medium-sized 767 Freighter. In adding the 777 Freighter – the world’s largest and longest range twin-engine cargo jet – ANA is expanding its cargo capabilities just as the air freight market keeps growing at historically high rates.
ANA says it plans to fly its new 777 Freighters on international routes, particularly to Asia, China, and North America. With this order, ANA will become the first airline in Japan to operate 777 Freighters.
The delivery is scheduled for 2019.
The 777 Freighter is capable of flying 4,900 nautical miles (9,070 kilometers) with a payload of 112 tons (102 metric tons or 102,000 kg). The airplane’s long range translates into significant savings as fewer stops mean lower landing fees, less congestion, lower cargo handling costs and shorter delivery times.
All Nippon Airways (ANA) is unveiling a new, vibrant and engaging content as part of its U.S. marketing campaign, ‘Experience Class™.’
The content features longtime ANA partner, DJ and producer Steve Aoki, and explores Japanese culture in a unique, authentic way. The centerpiece of this catalog of new content is a video that defines the Japanese principle of “Omotenashi,” and how this principle is rooted on every ANA flight. In addition, ANA is releasing a video content series co-designed with Aoki that explores both the popular and less-known side of Tokyo, and Aoki’s unique perspective on what makes Japanese culture so special.
Omotenashi. It’s a complex word with many meanings, but most importantly, it’s a concept deeply rooted in the Japanese culture. It’s a hallmark to the unspoken level of service and gratitude that runs throughout Japan. ANA understands this concept better than anyone. The spirit of Omotenashi lives in the sky with Experience Class — a 5-star journey found on every flight that is as experiential and authentic as the destination itself.
